Knit City, here they come! We aren’t there in person, but our amazing friends are bringing some of our fun wares to you on the coast. Sarah with Sea Turtle Fibre Arts has a limited supply of regular and our new GIANT mugs that go perfectly with her squishy colourful yarns. She’s got mugs and rainbows and a collection of colours that will make the gloomy skies brighten! Then, with mug in hand, wander over to visit Denise and Heather at Poppy Yarn & Fibre booth and welcome them to their first time vending at Knit City! We have partnered up on the sweetest cardigans in sizes from wee to mini-me. The yarn is luscious 100% merino, the pattern a quick yet satisfying cable for your favourite kiddo, and the buttons made by ME! Choose your own adventure with colour and sizes at their booth. Have fun, my friends! May the bright yarns make the rain seem like no dark thing. -Cara
Jason has a herd of sheep almost ready for firing! I’ll add some handles tonight, and after another batch, they’ll be into the kiln for the first of two firings. We’ll glaze them up, and back into the kiln they’ll go for their final firing. We have orders coming through Etsy and emails, so we are working to get them out on time. The kiln will be busy for the next two weeks! We expect to repeat the process in June, so if you’ve been waiting to order, don’t wait too long or you’ll have to wait for longer. He’s also working on some “Naughty Mugs” with words that seem to make some blush and some laugh, and most want one. They make me giggle and I’m looking forward to his planned variations – basically signaling to everyone around that they should leave you alone because you have fun things to do instead. We’ll sell them through the Facebook page and on this website once we have the e-commerce module set up because I’m just not sure that Etsy will appreciate the… ahem… language on these beauties. Details on how to purchase the Naughty Mugs aka the sweary mugs will be available once they’re out of the kiln.
